This is the inside of "The Abbey" near Cabulture, which is about a half hour drive from my home. One can only see inside the Abbey with a tour guide.

I think this was much better than the 4.5 score it received.

I tend to disagree with the suggestions of shooting at an angle. Although you may try again with their suggestions, I think it would lose it's symmetry. I love the way the pulpit(?) is arranged and the candles behind it.

The light coming in on the left and right sides (where the roof meets the walls) may have been avoided with either a bit more zoom or a slightly tighter crop.

I see you got some comments about grain. There's a couple of products (Neat Image and another one I can't remember right now) that have been mentioned in the forums. If you haven't already, download them and give them a try. (They're free.)

Do you know the significance of the numbers on the left? Just curious. :)


P.S. I would have scored this as a 6 at least.

The flash hot spots and overall grain detract from your image for me. Perhaps if taken from a different angle and not so..."dead" centered would enhance your concept.

What a beautiful photo! Those colors are so rich, and this church looks so quaint and inviting. A very nice depiction of faith! Good Luck!!! 10

Great color, but the image seems a little grainy. Maybe you could try a lower ISO.

There are a lot of church entries, what I like here is that you got inside. Good composition, though it seems grainy.

flash flare on the right is distracting

Centralising the point of focus, gives all the same strength in thire Faith, suites challenge well...

This seems a little pixelated or grainy.
